I'm looking for friends. I'm 19, and don't like how I spend my time. the image on the left is where I live, I know I'm not the only one. I can explain myself more while I bump, anyway Skype thread
Bumping. Also realizing I'm a retard who meant the image on the right. Sorry.
So I'm in a weird situation in life, I was a total burnout for a while there, and I'm trying to reinvent myself. I feel like this is an odd place to go for that, but I'm going to try anyway. I really hope someone else lives in NM, 505 specifically, and is maybe looking for good company as well.
Pic related is a picture I took. I like to think I'm into "artsy photography" but I know I'm just a faggot with too much time to waste.
scottish, no webcam, feel like shit, anyone whos up for some chat i'm down to listen and down to share some tales aswell
This is a picture of 2 of my cats. I have a 3rd but he's not as photogenic
The thing is, I'm just nervous, really about everything in life. I have problems with this, that, and there's nothing to do but accept it and move on, trying to find connection seems like the next step for me. I'm not really looking for sex, but some nice embrace would feel good right now, cuddling at least. I like all body types, genders. But again I'm not really looking for sex. It's just part of being lonely. I'm not sure what I'm looking for. This is really just me doing something out of the ordinary for myself.
i know its bullshit, not really art at all. I have a job and know plenty of people, its just been hard to connect with anyone. Everybody already has someone else for emotional suppsort it seems.
its a yellow pole at nighttime, covered in meat and I know, its very fucking stupid.
>everybody already has someone else for emotional support
BRUH. bruh. Don't tell me you're going around looking to find someone who wants to use you as a shoulder to cry on.
You're going to get used and you ain't gonna get shit back.
Meet people with similar interests. Do something new that you've never tried before, but try and have it be a group activity. Hell, go volunteering for fuck's sake.
You need to get out of your shell and start interacting. It won't change all at once, but you will gain confidence
I dont really know what Im looking for. not to mention, I live in Albuquerque. Gays are publicly beaten here. Its not a great place to meet people at all.
I understand that those are things I can do, and I appreciate the advice. My thinking however, is that meeting someone off of this board will cut out some extra steps of the introduction phase. Its just inherently easier to connect to people who are in the same boat
Its just an example of the extremes I deal with every day. Also Im sorry to say, i dont really play video games. I could try to get into maybe sometime, but ive always been more into film.
Well I will post it I suppose, its not that I dont want to I just thought it would be better to add people if theyre looking for a chat.
Anyway, the point of the thread more or less is to find people in my area, 505, and if that doesnt work out the skype thing is just because i dont have anyone to talk to.
Anyway I have to head to work now, but I hope the thread thrives a little while Im gone, and maybe someone from my city will be interested in hanging out. only time will tell. If alll else fails, tonight ill come back and postmore of my photography so people can say it looks like shit.
pic related i not my photography, but my favorite film.
anyway thank you everyone for your participaton
And you still didn't post.
Stop being an aspie. I was trying to reach out to you and talk to you but you're over complicating it more than I ever thought possible.
Meh, looking for nudes or cool people, either will work
P.S: I'm straight as an european sword
Posting from work.
I understand that, but it's really just the situation I'm finding myself in. I was normal once.
I know I haven't, but at this point it's no use. I may as well just add people. Anyway, I'm really not trying to make internet friends, I'd like to be face to face with someone.
Maybe this was a lost cause, but please, if you live where I live, anyone reading this, consider it. I'm not as much of an aspie in face to face conversation.
I live in the 505 it fucking sucks hard to meet anyone who isn't over weight or some kind of wannabe gangsta like I have nothing in common with these people Herr. I'm a gamer and s nerd who doexntvuse drugs at all. I'm just a blscksheep in this state.
Dude, gays are not publicly beaten in abq.
I can respect you're going through some shit, but no need for exaggeration.
There is room for more gay tolerance in most places, but nm is a blue state which had legal gay marriage for years before the federal passing
Not to mention Santa fe is a total gay haven
It's a tough place, but don't act like it's some gay bashing southern esque hell hole
You obviously dont use the abq public transit system, or spend any time on these shitty streets like i do every day. santa fe is not albuquerque, this city really doesnt reflect any "blue" values, and there is not only stigma about gays, but also race. ive been robbed, assaulted, and generally bullied more than you could imagine because im a "white boy".
thats not any sort of contribution. anyone can start a thread, you dont have to assume i feel special. i feel pretty bad about myself, thats why im here. if i wasnt boring i wouldnt be here at all.
I agree with this guy.
It seems like you're generalizing an entire place based on your experiences and observations.
That doesn't mean everyone ifs going to act that way.
Stop complaining about the bad ones and start gravitating toward the good ones.
Btw I took the bus to work for over a year, and I'm white- stop assuming.
Have you spent any time around unm?
Abq is a shithole dude. Its voilent and running rampant with drugs and 'tough guy' thugs. I'm also a white person living here, I get harassed all the time because I am white and female. I don't go out on my own in most areas it's just not safe.
It's not like there's a clear distinction between the "good" and "bad" parts of the city. Honestly, if you don't experience any of this, you're just lucky.
I'll add you soon
Well at least this thread is sort of going somewhere, have a skype anon?
You're right, me, my family, my friends, everyone I go to school with and work with, and every person I know must just be lucky.
Do you know how dumb that sounds?
I'm sorry some bad shit happened to you, but stop pretending like it's the place you live and not the choices you make.
There are tough places in every major city.
People get beat up in San Francisco, London, Berlin, doesn't matter.
If you feel victimized for being gay, or strange, or white (lol), I'm sorry, but stop acting like you are just this innocent soul floating around in a terrible place and nothing is your fault.
Do you have a job? Do you go to school? Do you have healthy relationships?
Or do you drink, smoke, do drugs, and spend a lot of time in dangerous parts of the city?
Well hey I'm glad you and your family have gotten by in this place without these hardships, but you must be in some kind of bubble, or just drive a car everywhere you go. I have a job, I'm doing classes at cnm, blah blah blah I mean really you can't say that I deserve any of what happened to me. It's really just not my fault, I realize that every city on earth has bad people, yet this place has specifically shown me a horrible side to it. That's all I can say. You really are lucky, and I guess I'm unlucky. But I didn't get myself into those situations, that's for sure.
Furthermore, I'm not really gay, but if I was to display any homosexual tendencies around the general public of drunken natives and Mexican druggies, I would get fucking wrecked. How can you even deny that's the truth. Do we live in the same city? I don't even live in the south valley, I'm right in the middle of old town, the biggest tourist spot, yet it's packed with indigents and degenerates.
shut the fuck upppppppp
i lived in the north valley, south valley, west side, war zone, rio rancho (meth part)
everywhere, and guess what. it isn't that fucking bad if you mind your business and show some respect.
don't act like a crzy faggot and you'll be fine.
i've been gay for a while
The first week I was here a guy got shot in the street while I was sitting in my car. I just see examples of violence everywhere I go, the bars on all the windows and doors, driving downtown and seeing all the poor and downtrodden people, the prostitutes. Not that ALL of ABQ is like this, there are some nice areas of the city for sure. I am not from New Mexico though, I am from Canada and I suppose I just see it like this because I am not used to the different culture (not that Canada doesn't have issues but I lived in a very small east coast town with little to no issues ) I don't have skype though just kik. I have been living here in ABQ for almost two years now.
He was a kid on a bicycle, yours assumptions don't take away from the fact that shooting someone in the middle of the afternoon in busy traffic isn't okay and is dangerous, 'deserving' or not.
My best friend was 14 when they were selling drugs at John Adams, my other friends disappeared slowly.
mind your own fucking business and you won't have a problem.
stay away from drugs and addicts, and don't piss people off unless you have the means to defend yourself.
Again, sitting in my car on a busy highway in the middle of day IS minding my own business. He was still shot and a bunch of us saw it. Anyone in the area could have been hit. It doesn't matter if I mind my own business you can still find yourself in situations that are dangerous.
Walking from my car to my apartment and a bunch of dudes are really drunk fighting, I have to walk around them to get to my door and one of them lunges at me. I haven't made eye contact or acknowledged them at all, I took a wide as possible birth and yet was still almost dragged into it.
No shit I am not going to run into the middle of a gang fight or a drug deal, but you can still find yourself in trouble. There have been statistics that show ABQ has double the national crime average, it is very much a dangerous place to live.
That's just rediculous. You're basically proving my point that this is an awful place to live.
Add me on kik if you want, lir2016
I bet anywhere in Canada is a far superior place to live, no doubt about that
not really, it isn't a bad place to live, stop moving into shit neighborhoods.
i've lived in the hood, no one ever bothered me. but i carry and was in the reserves at the time. people don't fuck with people who they have respect for .
maybe you need to get respect
Listen man I would have an actual discussion with you if you dropped your Skype maybe. I really am curious as to what you mean by "minding your own business", among other things you brought up
i'm not dumb enough to drop my skype on a site when i've already siad i'm in the militray, i'm not retarded..
basically minding your business shows that you know what is going on but it isn't your issue, just fucking walk the other way and if there is a problem take care of it.
if someone shoots a kid on the highway i'd probably take a gun out and shoot that person. it's called self defense of an other. not a big deal
Just did. That's literally just stupid. You're taking yourself too seriously. I mean, do you think you're James Bond or something? You're just a chess piece for the United States government, you're not protecting any "secrets"
not really, the point is that me saying i'm from certain places and then admitting to a certain user name would give people someone to watch tha t lives in an area that they would find interesting, and ven a slight bit of information that could put someone in danger, either on purpose or not.
anyone can be a security risk, you don't have to know top secret information to make it easier
